Join respiratory care managers and educators at the AARC Summer Forum in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, offering in-depth information and strategies for the leaders in our profession. Learn in 4 days the techniques, tips and technology to help run your department or classroom effectively and prepare RTs for success in our quickly-evolving health care system, and earn up to 15.88 hours of continuing education credit (CRCE®) credits.

See what's in store for the 2016 Managers and Educator’s Meeting.

Managers who attend will receive in-depth education on how to create, sustain and grow value in their department through the development of clinical services that impact the bottom line and improve quality. In addition, RT managers will also learn new roles and opportunities to expand the breadth and scope of their staff. Are you struggling to grow your business in what many are describing as the most tumultuous time in the history of health care? Then you should attend the 2016 AARC Summer Forum — Where Challenges Become Opportunities.

Educators who attend will find our sessions essential to building and maintaining a successful and sustainable RT program and curriculum. More importantly, educators will learn to invest in themselves and develop their faculty. Other topics to be covered will be unique and effective teaching strategies, the use of simulation technology and how to incorporate research into your curriculum. And of course, don’t miss out on the Jimmy A. Young Memorial Lecture and Dr. Fred Helmholz’ Education Lecture Series, which are the highlight of every Summer Forum!

Pre-course sessions for educators will include CoARC’s “Meet the Referee” and NBRC’s “Scoring Responses to the NBRC Simulation Examination,” as well as a fabulous 4-hour course titled “Focus on the Future: Maximizing Program Effectiveness.” This interactive course is a continuation of the learning that took place at the 2015 Summer Forum pre-course and will focus on program development, evaluating outcome measures, succession planning and much, much more.
